Hello, Your vehicle system works with Hazard Lamps The BCM (body control module) sends a voltage signal to the FCIM to monitor for a hazard lamp function request. When the hazard flasher switch (a capacitive touch switch) is touched, the voltage signal is routed to ground, indicating a request to activate or deactivate the hazard lamp function. When the BCM receives a request for the hazard lamps, the BCM supplies on/off voltage to all the turn lamps. The timed on/off cycle for the hazard lamps is approximately 80 times per minute regardless of bulb outage. This is what you should do is a complete reset of the system. Disconnect both of the battery cables wait 5 minutes and than touch the cables together. Reconnect them and see if resetting the modules does the trick and let me know.
